The well-known island of Phuket is a scene full of many tourist destinations with almost innumerable places to enjoy in every beach town. When visiting or staying in Karon beach one will find many restaurants to choose from, but one with exceptional service, a unique atmosphere and an eclectic menu is certainly the Movenpick Resort restaurant complex. Set right across the road from the beach, this impressive venue is truly a tropical seaside dining experience.
The layout of the place is tiki huts, torches and an open space with relaxing tables, live music and sand underfoot at the Sands Bar. Set aloft is the air conditioned two part restaurant: an authentic Brazilian churrasco at El Gaucho and the best of Asian cuisine at Orient Asia. The settings are refined and one can order from either menu. The plates average around $20 U.S. Dollars per person, a very acceptable price for the surroundings and the quality of the food and service.
